In this paper, the overlap algorithm is applied to the nonstandard finite-difference time-domain (NS-FDTD) method using a nonuniform mesh in a 2-D space. The characteristics of the overlap algorithm are numerically examined and compared with a no overlap algorithm. The results show that the reflection rate from the interface of the two meshes using the overlap algorithm is less than -80 dB, which is smaller than that of the NS-FDTD method without the overlap. Consequently, it is shown that the overlap algorithm is more suitable for the NS-FDTD method when using a nonuniform mesh. The overlap algorithm is successfully applied to the analysis of a dielectric flat panel and a corrugated surface
